(Adds new chair, background)

March 9 (Reuters) - Wells Fargo & Co said on Monday Elizabeth Duke had resigned as the chair of its board, effective March 8.

James Quigley had also stepped down as a member of the board, the bank said in a statement.

Charles Noski, former finance chief at Bank of America Corp , will replace Duke, who was elected as chair in Jan. 2018, after serving as vice-chair for a little over a year.

The departures come a month after Wells Fargo Chief Executive Officer Charles Scharf announced his first major reshuffle since taking over in October, naming several executives to new roles while also tapping a JPMorgan Chase & Co veteran to head consumer lending.
